If you’re a fan of all the epic immersive art pieces that have been hitting Brisbane, you’ll be thrilled to hear that another massive outdoor art exhibition is coming along, and this one's designed to be enjoyed after dark. 

Botanica:Contemporary Art Outside is heading for the City Botanics Gardens in May, bringing a huge display of immersive artworks from some of Australia’s leading contemporary artists and designers that will light up the parklands with projections and installations — melding art, science, and technology to reflect themes of sustainability and innovation. The event will celebrate social connection and inclusion, re-enchantment and affirmation of Brisbane as a loveable, liveable city — making it a must-see spectacle for locals and visitors alike.

On top of the free works to explore on your own schedule, there'll be guided twilight walks, live artwork creation where you can contribute to an exhibit, interactive workshops and talks, and the popular children’s discovery trail. On the Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights a pop-up bar and food trucks will be pulling up in the gardens for a twilight session, too.

Botanica will be taking over the gardens from Friday 20 to Monday 29 May, and you can keep an eye on Brisbane City Council’s website for more information on the individual works and timetable of scheduled events.
